We encourage all our students to be active citizens, to research who will best represent you, and then to make your voice heard by voting!
The problem: Student/Community Divide
College aged adults are increasingly observed to be uninterested in or alienated from active involvement in civic life. This level of "civic engagement" is a firm predictor of future organizational, community and electoral participation later in life, all cornerstones of our American democracy.
The solution: Increase Civic Engagement
Through creative and challenging service learning projects and interdisciplinary approaches to the involvement in democratic processes and current events, the University can encourage students to engage their communities in meaningful ways that bring about the betterment of all. It is the mission of the American Democracy Project and the Americorps Vista program to help bring this solution to UW Oshkosh.
